Works begin on Australian first Satellite Hospitals program in the Redlands

Works have begun on Australia’s first Satellite Hospitals program in the Redlands.

Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Yvette D’Ath said that the crucial projects across the south-east corner would deliver improved healthcare services in growing communities.

“We are building these Satellite Hospitals to support growing communities with the health infrastructure that they need,” D’Ath said.

“Our Satellite Hospitals program is an Australian-first initiative that will improve health care, supporting jobs in construction and health jobs when they’re open.”

Satellite Hospitals will be built in the Redlands alongside Eight Mile Plains, Caboolture, Ripley, Pine Rivers, Tugun and Bribie Island.

Minister for Public Works and Member for Springwood Mick de Brenni said the Satellite Hospitals program will create up to 773 jobs.

“We’ve chosen to partner with Queensland construction icon Hutchinson’s across all the Satellite Hospital projects.

“This will be under a new model that delivers rapid construction, best practice conditions, project trust accounts coverage and a quality finish,” de Brenni said.

The Redland Satellite Hospital will be located at 22–28 Meissner Street, Redland Bay.
